After a divorce settlement is reached and a court order is entered, there are often ongoing obligations for each party. These obligations can include payment of support, dividing a retirement account, or settling a house, to name a few. Our experienced attorneys can assist you if your former spouse beaches your agreement or court order, including explaining the various remedies available under Virginia law and helping you develop a strategy to enforce your rights.
Virginia law recognizes that the needs of children vary through the course of their lives. For that reason, custody and child support orders are modifiable if there has been a material change of circumstances and if a modification of that order would be in the best interests of your children. In addition, depending on the language of your agreement or court order, there may be a term that is modifiable. It is important that you meet with an attorney who can review your documents and determine your specific needs.
